That love has a far greater use value than simply fostering procreation.
Such as? Compassion? Compassion doesn't help a disabled person achieve his potential, if he even has a potential.
"Posterity" would probably be ashamed that we sunk to such a level of moral depravity.
Really? You Americans did Eugenics in the early 1900's, I don't see anyone apologising for or being ashamed of that. Either way, if Posterity had the same Eugenic values as us in the present, they would not look down on us, but look up to us for saving them from a generation of practically useless human beings.
Good. I am certain we will want to opt out of that scheme.
We do not have a shortage of investment capital available in our society. What we lack is a proper distribution of wealth and income that would foster greater demand and thus a better utilization of resources. Nothing would be a better utilization of resources that to help the poor and the disabled. Of course, if you are so weak that you cannot lift a finger to help such people, then perhaps you are the one in need. I suspect you have no understanding of just what it is that you really need.
I never said we have a shortage of investment capital, but you can't have a surplus either, there is always money to be invested into something, whether is scientific research or universal healthcare. "Nothing would be a better utilization of resources that to help the poor and the disabled". So you think instead of investing long term in scientific research, we should help some disabled people for no reason except for "It's the right time to do!" What a waste of resources.
Of course, if you are so weak that you cannot lift a finger to help such people, then perhaps you are the one in need. I suspect you have no understanding of just what it is that you really need.
Undeniably, when I begin to pay taxes, I will be supporting Disabled people, whether I want to or not. What is it that I am exactly I need of? It's not that I don't want to help people, it's just that I'd rather my and other people's money go towards long term important and much more life saving thinks like scientific research and universal healthcare, rather than just helping disabled people's achieve nothing.
